With the end of March and the beginning of April, spring seems to finally be arriving after an unusually harsh winter here in the Pacific Northwest.

My Latest Sale: RSO

Last November, Resource Capital Corp. (NYSE:RSO) announced that it was going to cut its quarterly dividend from 42 cents to 5 cents (-88.1%). Because of this cut, my annual yield for RSO dropped from 9.58% to 1.14%. Ouch! With such a wretched dividend yield, RSO became a good candidate for selling off. Even if sold …

Dividend Income Report for January 2017

January is over, and I am so glad to see it gone. Having lived here in the Portland metro area for 18 years, I’ve noticed that we get a good snowing every four years or so. So, as expected, the weather got pretty ugly during the middle of the month with an abundance of snow …
